Short and sweet, I am aware of the battle that I face each and every day. The list is long and the enemy is relentless. Therefore I decide each day to put on my full armor to help protect me in battle. You see, as a believer in Christianity, that is, coming to the cross of Jesus Christ, I believe I am to walk with Him, second, to live like Him, and third, to work for Him. And above all, do the will of my Father God. The armor is mostly defensive but the sword (the word, His instructions and His still small voice) drives me towards eternity. This is my protection as well as the Holy Spirit that guides and protects me. Salvation come to those who believe. All people will all be judged by our Lord who rose from the grave, who's shed blood on the cross , and is preparing a place for all believers and doers of the word. Yes I fail at times, get wounded, but by His grace and mercy (stripes) I am healed and return to the battle. I love the accountability of Spark people and I love each and every moment I spend being accountable to my virtual friends and my personal friends and family, whom I share life together with. I have lost 38 pounds, became vegetarian and my energy level is way up so.. by this time next year my goal is to be still in the battle, and nearing my goal weight. But most importantly being a [doer] of His word and not just [being] saved. Update 4-17-12 lost 60 pounds. Thank you Jesus,...Amen
Update 5-29-12 lost 72.5 pounds.
